The Woods Lamp is a lightweight, ultra-violet light used to detect ringworm or the presence of a fungal infection. When an area on the skin is infected with Tinea, a type of ringworm fungus, the fungus will glow under the light of the Woods Lamp. Ringworm is a highly contagious infection which can lead to hair loss on dogs. It can quickly spread to other animals and humans as well. If ringworm is detected, immediate treatment is necessary.
In addition, this mini-lantern also has an LED light setting for use as a handy flashlight in small places. Requires four AA batteries (not included).
